tyranny with liberty and no one would benefit more than israel if those committed to freedom and peace would prevail. this is my fervent hope. as prime minister of israel i can at risk the future of the jewish state on wishful thinking. leaders must see reality as it is. not as it ought to be. we must do our best to shape the future but we cannot wish away the dangers of the present. the world around israel is becoming more dangerous. militant islam has already taken over lebanon and gaza. it is determined to tear apart the peace treaty between israel and egypt and between israel and jordan. it has poisoned many arab minds against jews and israel against america and the west. opposes not the policies of israel but the existence of israel. some argue the spread of militant islam especially in these turbulent times if you want to slow it down, they argue, israel must hurry to make concessions. to make territorial compromise. this theory sounds simple. basically it goes like this. leave the territory. peace will be advanced. the moderates will be strengthened, radicals will be kept at bay
